The Nacogdoches Memorial Women’s Wellness Center was created and designed to fulfill an urgent need in women’s healthcare for the early detection of breast cancer. The attractive setting and sensitive staff members minimize the anxiety most feel about this special aspect of their health.

To assure the highest levels of personalized care, our technologists are all carefully trained and registered in Mammography. The Women’s Wellness Center is accredited by the American College of Radiology and certified by the FDA and TDH.

Your physician may order any of our services for you:

EDUCATION:
Individual instruction in Breast Self-Examination using film, aids and guided self-examination. The goal is for you to gain confidence in the procedure and make a personal commitment to examine your breasts regularly.

MAMMOGRAPHY:
This exam is a very safe breast x-ray using the lowest level of radiation available today. Mammography can detect breast cancers that are too small to be felt by physical examination and now we're excited to offer more detail, more accuracy and more peace of mind with our new Hologic Dimensions 3D Tomo Digital Mammography unit. 

Three-dimensional mammography is used to detect breast cancer by capturing multiple images of the breast in a single data set, bypassing the detection challenges associated with 2-dimensional screening featuring overlapping tissue that may hide lesions. The 3Dimensions™ system provides higher quality 3D images for radiologists, a more comfortable mammography experience for patients and enhanced workflow for technologists. Sharper images and smarter technologies help find invasive cancers – regardless of age or breast density.

Breakthrough improvements transform the patient experience without compromising speed or accuracy and Hologic Dimensions 3D Tomo Digital Mammography is clinically proven to deliver a more comfortable mammogram. The patient experience is improved because of the curved compression surface that mirrors the shape of the breast, for more even compression. The 3D unit is designed to improve the visibility of fine details for greater diagnostic confidence and enables technologists to conduct fast, efficient exams and accelerate reading time to streamline workflow.

DIGITAL SCREENING:
A routine exam that consists of two views of each breast that is utilized to detect unsuspected breast cancer at an early age in asymptomatic women.

DIAGNOSTIC:
A more extensive exam to evaluate a breast mass or other suspicious signs or symptoms (e.g. lump, tenderness, breast discharge). Also used to evaluate breast implants.

SECOND LOOKCAD SYSTEM:
Our Second Look Computer-Aided Detection (CAD) system offers a “second review” of your mammogram to identify even the most subtle changes in breast tissue, resulting in the earliest detection possible.
